When thinking about Estevan, the opera is not the first thing that comes to mind. Sure, we all assume Lignite Louie is a tenor, but no one knows for certain.

The new artist in residence at the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum, Emily Ellis, is working on a project involving stop motion film and a piece of operatic music. She will be working on the collaborative project until the end of January with the help of two musicians from Toronto.

Ellis joined the Rock 106 morning show to explain the work that goes into a project like this and to also share her enthusiasm for the arts.
